Whiplash Help in Redwood City California

Whiplash, Sore Neck, Neck Pain, Neck AcheA person may have been hit from behind by an automobile or simply from someone running toward them and crashing into them. That is the amount of speed it takes to cause whiplash. What exactly is whiplash?

It is an injury to your upper neck caused by the head being forced forward and backward. The vertebrae in the upper neck make a fast motion, much like cracking a whip. This, in turn, can lead to damage to the muscles and tissues of the neck. The bones, discs, and ligaments can also become damaged leading to further issues. The misalignment of the top two vertebrae will cause a person the majority of problems.

Drawbacks of Whiplash

  • Misalignment of the top two bones in the neck
  • Pain is reported in 84% of people in rear-end collisions
  • Symptoms in 25% of people last for up to 7 years
  • Damage and eventually degeneration to the spine occur in 68%

Can Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Help?

Two studies conducted indicate that there is indeed evidence to support success in chiropractic treatment.

  • The first study: 93 people were involved that had various whiplash symptoms. 83% of them experienced a decrease in symptoms after receiving upper cervical chiropractic care. Of these, 31% had their symptoms entirely disappear.
  • The second study: 57 patients were in this study. They reported a recovery time of 29 weeks under the care of an upper cervical chiropractor.
  • Both studies reported their subjects had an improvement in range of motion and muscle strength after realignment of the upper neck.

It is no wonder, then, that the Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine reported the answer for whiplash patients is to seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. They stated that this is the best way to find relief from whiplash symptoms, including pain.

It is vital to seek out our care as soon as possible after an automobile or another kind of accident. In this way, healing can begin, and life can continue uninterrupted by pain.
